The Empire State Building Turns Green to Mark the Last Day of Ramadan

(click to enlarge photos) 

A couple of shots of the Empire State Building lit green tonight for the last day of the Islamic holiday, Ramadan.

This is the same exact corner where I stood and watched the World Trade Center burn and collapse on Tuesday, September 11, 2001.  I could see the flames in the windows of the towers and the black smoke poured out like hell running over.  

I was so glad that the Empire State Building was spared as a target that day for Islamic terrorism.  It's one of my favorite buildings and it is the heart of the New York City skyline.  At that time I worked a block away from it on 35th Street and Madison Avenue. For months after the attacks every time I saw it, I had visions of planes flying into it.  
And whenever I walked under a tall building [which was every single day] I would wonder: What if it fell? Could I outrun it?

Meanwhile, they couldn't light it up for Mother Theresa!

Its a slap in the face to the families of all those who died on 9/11. Islam brought us 9/11. Once again this Ramadan season we saw Muslims killing Christians, Muslims killing our soldiers, Green on Blue killings. What good has Islam brought to America? Bloomberg is a disgrace. He allows Muslims to block the streets lifting their asses up to the sky. He allows Muslim cab drivers to block the streets with their cabs anytime they feel its time to get out for prayer. Isn't it time for America to take back its country from the evils of Islam. Time to light up that Empire State Building on 9/11 to show the world we will never forget.

Here is a list of light themes and their meanings for the Empire State Building.

Funny, I don't see Ramadan listed there, though that is clearly the case.

Our leaders are willingly walking us into dhimmitude, in spite of those of us who see how wrong it is and call them out on it.

Can any of our leaders tell us why they continue to support and suck up to Islam? What good is there about it? Nothing. And it just keeps getting worse. Why do we allow our government to send billions of our tax dollars to places where they chant 'death to America'?

I am going to use part of this post of yours in a larger one of my own. I hope I remember to send it to you.

We are almost finished with our fundraiser so perhaps after that?

I have the post blocked out and you'll be interested in the video which accompanies it.

Gah!

I wouldn't be surprised if the Pentagon were illuminated green if Obama wins a second term.

Always on Watch:

Obama and his far left advisors already have plans to turn the Pentagon green. They have targeted it as the worst environmental criminal and have begun slashing its budget. Obama & Co. also want to turn it into a 'global social justice green force' and use it to combat 'global warming.'

The 'End' sign in the second photo is eerie.
